DARKE COUNTY — A Darke County bus driver knew something was wrong when multiple service lights turned on Thursday afternoon.
“We had to stop my bus because my engine light came on and now it’s smoking really bad,” Tawnya Osborne told a 911 dispatcher.
With the help of a teacher, Osborne got all the students off the bus, shortly before it burst into flames.
“I’m thankful that I was able to take the time to assess the situation and have the time to realize what was going on and get the kids off the bus,” she said.
Each school bus owner is required to have emergency policies, according to the Ohio Department of Education.
